    I would also like to nominate "Cleavage of the Week" as the young barmaid in the Horse and Jockey in Reading, as they say she made a happy man feel very old .

    Next week's may be Batham's MILD so watch out in the Black Country..... I'm on the way.

    I've seen those somewhere before

    Bishops Castle is very firmly on my list as I remember it for having two of the very few surviving home brew pubs before the micro brewery craze took off (Three Tuns is the other in the village).

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Some great beers this week, it will take something special over the weekend to top the list. Best four of the bunch have been Hydes 1863, Humpty Dumpty Little Sharpie, Brewdog 5am Saint and Ilkley Black.

    Incidentally, has anyone else here tried many of the Humpty Dumpty Brewery’s beers? I’d never even heard of them until last week, but all of their beers I've had have been exceptionally good. Despite their silly name.
    And you can really taste the hops!

    The Zulu Blonde from the 'spoons festival was on last night in the Wibbas Down Inn. Surely this isn't a remnant of the JDWfestival, it was in good shape and selling well. Anyone heard news, perhaps extended for the World Cup? The original notes stated that the brewer visited and brewed the batch here at Marstons. Has he stayed on?

    Yes, I vaguely recall they were bringing the brewer back for the World Cup, but brewing it elsewhere ...maybe Everards?

    Yes I've had a few of them, mainly at beer festivals. They often follow a railway theme as the brewery was originally at the Railway Tavern in Reedham. Anyone want a Tender Behind?

    The following is taken from the Men Brewing Badly thread:

They’ve bought the Zululand Brewery guy over from South Africa and he’ll be brewing the Zulu Blonde that featured at the last festival during the World Cup. He’ll be brewing at Everards this time rather than Marstons. Something to look forward to

    Can't comment on the others EG, but love Ilkley Black. My BOTW a couple of weeks ago. Fabulous stuff.

    Turning out to be a good week, this week. Didn't think anything would topple Rooster's 'YPA', but had Mallinson's 'Castle Hill Premium' yesterday and that blew me away.

    Always a favourite of mine, but sadly (and surprisingly) topped this week by a particularly good pint of Well's Bombardier (my BOTW nomination) in the Joiners Arms in Stafford (can't put in a link as the pub wasn't on here, so I've added it).

    Now there's some words I'd never expect to read, not in this context anyway

    that must be some skilled cellarman they have there and deserving of our respect.
